Gosh what a scary sounding thing to happen to someone.

And it is, scary.

Oh sis,

I am sorry if you are going through a difficult time. I read and re-read this, thinking maybe it pertains to something or someone else.

Please do get better. Insha'Allah, you will find that brighter place.

Assalamu alaykum & Eid Mubarak,

You might not want to post this comment....but I wanted to say that I am concerned for you....I have been wondering why your posting has slowed down so dramatically, but then I see that you were busy writing for your recent publication, so I figured thats what was keeping you occupied, but someting didnt feel right.

Are you getting treatment/help? HOw is your family handling this?

Oh Allah, please help sister Brandy, bring her peace of mind, and sunshine, and most of all wellness and strong iman, Ameen.

I was diagnosed with Bipolar about the age of 28. Dr Greenfield said, “I showed a strong emphasis’ on “rapid cycling.” Manic was a time I met deadlines and didn’t require a large amount of sleep. I still did all the wifey, mommy stuff. I was, and still am to a healthier degree a perfectionist. I, so wanted everyone to like me. I did not have the worse childhood but still had some trauma during those formative years. I married young and sought out to be the best I could at all my endeavors in all aspects of my life. I do have my demons that still surround me from mistakes I made in my twenties and early thirties. I tried to commit suicide twice and as a result, the ER docs and nurses had to pump my stomach full of charcoal. One of the first turning points was seeing my name on the board with OD by it. In the beginning, I loved being manic. Being on medication took away some of the energy I had always drawn upon to get projects done. It wasn’t healthy and was ruining my marriage. The serotonin reuptake inhibitors always seems to help the depression but the Psychiatrist weren’t getting the mood stabilizers that seem to have the least amount of side effects to work for “ME” on the crazy manic side. After my divorce, and insurance changed for some reason, God has his hand. This Psychiatrist was a female Muslim from Pakistan who got my records on the Psych. Ward. She listened and understood me. She tried me on a new mood stabilizer but the same medications for depression with a piggyback effect. Guess what. It worked. Slowly, ever so slowly I came out of it. Yes, I am still on my maintenance medications.I try and not miss a dose. I have missed a few doses here and there but it puts me inside of my house unable to communicate with the world at all. I haven’t been admitted to a hospital for bipolar episodes for over 7 years. Yes, everyday is a challenge for me, but I am much better off than I was before my very special doctor I met at UHCM. I am sorry you having trouble right now. Let some things go, and forgive yourself. Hang in there.
